'. that is a decision made by harry reid who says that the assault weapons bill does not have the vote does make it past a fill buster by the republicans. o that is what we reported yesterday. and all of that is still true. senator feinstein's bill is not going to be in the democrat's reform package in the senate. but if you ask senator dianne feinstein, that fact that it's not going to be included in the overall package of bills that goes to the senate floor, that does not mean that her bill is dead. according to her, it may not be a part of that overall comprehensive bill, but she is not going to play dead on this subject, and she insists that it will be voted on by other means. >> now senator reid had said you deserved a vote. but it's appearing that it could be an amend. that it could be a symbolic vote. what's your response to this new -- >> no, if it is an amendment that is not ha symbolic vote. it enacted a law. it went on to the house. it was enacted what senator reid told me is that i would have an opportunity for a vote. i take him at his word. this is very important to me. and i'm not going t
safety. harry reid will bring the senate's proposal to the floor and include votes on assault weapons and high capacity magazines. yesterday, new york city mayor mike bloomberg optimistic about the vote during an appearance on "meet the press." >> we are going to have a vote, for sure, on assault weapons and we are going to have a vote on background checks and if we were to get background checks only, it wouldn't be as good as if we got both, but look. we demanded a plan and then we demanded a vote. we have got the plan and we are going to get the vote. >> the mayor announced a new $12 million ad campaign that will challenge senators in 13 states from arizona to pennsylvania to back gun control legislation. >> for me, guns are for hunting and protecting my family. i believe in the second amendment and i'll fight to protect it. but with rights, come responsibilities. that's why i support xren hencive background so the criminals and mentally dangerously ill can't get guns and that protects my rights and family. >> he's going to find out this is a country of the people by the people and
to move forward? it is significant that it is harry reid. prided himself on the support he received from the nra. he was able to use the support of gun rights groups to defeat in aepublican opponents difficult race. he has been reluctant to support gun control throughout the years. since the newtown shooting, he has been largely silent on the issue. it has been a big question on what harry reid would support on the floor of the senate. the fact he has introduced background checks is significant. has beennne feinstein an advocate on the assault weapons ban and something she has worked on for a long time. thebig was the defeat of assault weapons ban, and take us behind the scenes. it was totally expected. i think ever since the newtown shooting, we knew there was momentum building for gun this hugegislation, popular support around the country for that measure. the band has been questionable, partly because you are taking away the rights of ordinary citizens to own a certain kind of gun that they currently own. would be banned under this legislation. it was just not clear that they would be

this year. but we sit here and let the clock tick. one thing i can tell -- i know my good friend harry reid -- ware noweare not going to i cane budget can can down the road foo weeks. we will be here, whether it has to be saturday night, sunday, monday, and tuesday. we will be here. there's 50 hours fl w. we will have a nice, full, open debate. and then do our votes. it's a logical request. i don't think there's any good argument against it. i haven't thought of one yet. and i would urge my colleagues on the other side of the aisle, we would say, mr. leader, mr. republican leader, mr. republicans, let us debate that budget. tear down the wall of not debating. and let us show our budget, you show yours, and let the american people decide. i yield the floor. mrs. boxer: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator from california. mrs. boxer: madam president, i want to add my words to those eloquently spoken by our budget committee chairman, patty murray, and one of our leaders here, the able senator from new york, senator schumer. we are waiting for hours and hours. i can only imagine
. going forward, when congress returns from the easter and passover break, harry reid has signaled the first thing that he may well do is bring a gun violence measure to the floor of the united states senate, and it contains a background check provision that has been widely criticized by many republicans. lengthymming note, this discussion of the background check provision with senator tom ."burn sunday on "newsmakers that is what we're looking at ford as we move into a couple of weeks from now when the senate returns. >> neils lesniewski will be our guest on sunday, talking to senator tom coburn. and live look at the senate chamber. heritage action is treating that as leaders attempt to decide the earama roup of vot amendments. what are your budget priorities. the house passed a proposal yesterday. eveninggo well into the and maybe by early saturday morning, and it will be wrapped up. let's go to calls. good afternoon. make sure you meet your television. -- you mute your television. next, bobbie. your sure you mute television. -- the my concern is budget. i feel that social securi
diane feinstein is going after assault weapons, but she's not going to get what she wants. as harry reid said, i'm looking at the reality of the thing. assault weapons ban will not pass. i will not bring it up. your thoughts? >> well, political reality has smacked even harry reid across the face here and it's going to be rather difficult, but i imagine that diane feinstein will find some way of partisan yoga to blame republicans for this instead of her senate majority leader. but she has doubled and tripled down now and she's talking about introducing the very kind of ammunition magazine ban that was just passed here in colorado. so they're not giving up. she hasn't over the last several decades. i think a what we're going to see is an even more hysterical campaign by the gun grabbers, by the michael bloombergs of the world, and the sarah brady campaign to demonize not harry reid. they're not going to be protesting at his office, but to marginalize the nra and second amendment supporters in this battle. >> steve: you're out in colorado and a couple of days ago we heard from a colorado sh
